Teletext R Podcast, 20th February 2021 – Roy Essandoh, The Ceefax Striker – with Paul Lewis
NOTE: There is also an ‘Extra Time’ edition for football fans out there.
It’s one of the most iconic moments in FA Cup history – Roy Essandoh leaping to score a last-minute goal against Leicester and earn Wycombe Wanderers a place in the Semi-Finals of England’s most prestigious cup competition.
The ‘Ceefax Striker’, as he has been dubbed, signed for injury-stricken Wycombe after his agent spotted a story about the club’s plight on the BBC’s teletext service.
And to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Essandoh’s heroics, Dan is joined by Paul Lewis, operator of the official Wycombe website at that time, and current owner of the Chairboys fansite.
